Actually, a wrecked car--any car--is never a good sight to see. But there's something about red sports cars and their achingly beautiful shape that makes seeing them after a crash doubly painful. It's as though you own the damaged automobile yourself.
Here are photos of a mangled Toyota 86, taken and sent to us by Aaron Padilla, who says he saw this on Quezon Avenue. We have no idea where--or how--the accident took place. As you can see here, the car was already being towed when the photographer spotted it. You will also notice that the driver-side airbag was deployed.
When we first laid eyes on these images, the phrase "giving up the ghost" came to mind. Not very many people will be fortunate enough to own an 86 or a BRZ. So seeing this really stings. Anyway, whether you own a red sports car or a drab-looking sedan, the lesson here is to always be careful on the road. All it takes is a split second of error for something like this to happen.
